Banyana Banyana will play Japan in an international friendly match. Both countries will face off on Sunday, 10 November 2019 at the Kitakyushu Stadium in Fukuoka, Japan.

Kickoff is at 12h45 local time (05h45 South African time – Japan is seven hours ahead).

The two nations will then lock horns again in a practice match the following day (Monday, 11 November) before the squad returns home where they are expected to land on Wednesday, 13 November at 07h10.

This will be the second meeting between the two nations – the first was at the London Olympic Games in July 2012, and ended goalless.

Both countries were at the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup in France – with Banyana Banyana being knocked out in the group stages, while the Asians departed the scene in the next round of 16.
